Aerodynamic measurements presents a comprehensive review of the theoretical bases on which experimental techniques used in aerodynamics are based. Limitations of each method in terms of accuracy, response time and complexity are addressed. This book serves as a guide to choosing the most pertinent technique for each type of flow field including: 1D, 2D, 3D, steady or unsteady, subsonic, supersonic or hypersonic.
- No book currently presents as many techniques as are presented in this volume. They are usually available in only a short course or in proprietary booklets
- Offers a critical review of the various methods of aerodynamic measurement and helps guide the reader to choose the most appropriate in each case
- Describes the evolution of specific techniques from old-fashioned mechanical processes to modern computerized versions aiding students and practitioners to understand results of their findings
